The level of destruction from Monday's tornado is enormous.
"We are, we hope, in the recovery stages now," said Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin. "They are starting to move the debris off the roadways onto the side or the curbs."
Clearing debris quickly is important as things begin to rot and smell quickly. Fallin said for now cleanup crews are not touching homes or private property, allowing individuals to come and look for personal things first.
Mayor of Moore, Oklahoma, Glenn Davis said he wants to see new laws that would require storm shelters or safe rooms in all new homes.
Davis spoke with CNN "The Lead's" Jake Tapper about what needs to be done, and also shared news that the last six missing persons from Monday's tornado have now been accounted for - five of them were okay, and one is presumed dead.
The government has identified "a certain number of people" believed to be involved in the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, according to a senior Republican lawmaker.
Investigators now have names to go with the faces seen in surveillance video of the terrorist attack, the lawmaker tells CNN.
Several weeks ago, the FBI released pictures of three men seen on that video. At the time, it did not identify them as suspects. And it remains unclear whether these are the men who have now been identified.
The FBI will only say that the investigation is "ongoing."
Last week, CNN reported that the U.S. Military has updated plans to "capture or kill" those allegedly behind the attack.
One look at the Camden Village strip mall, in Moore, Oklahoma, and you see not only the tornado's fury, but also its vagaries. At one end, a Chinese restaurant was torn to shreds, at the other, a pub was left virtually untouched.
"The tornado just came, I mean you can see the way it came. Dan McGuiness, which is the pub at the end, you could go in there and have a hamburger if they had electricity," said Lisa Talley, whose father owns the mall. "They didn't get touched. There were two beers still sitting on the counter, untouched."
When a tornado with the force of an atomic bomb slams into a community as it did in Moore, Oklahoma, safe rooms can mean the difference between life and death.
That is why a lot of questions are being raised about why so many homes and buildings in Moore lacked safe rooms, including the two schools directly hit by Monday's tornado.
Jeff Rodgers had an $11,000 tornado safe room installed at his Shawnee, Oklahoma, house just a week ago. Four days later, the tornado passed by his backyard.
"From seeing the destruction at Moore, and seeing the destruction half a mile from us, you need to have a safe place to go in Oklahoma," said Rodgers.
